Here is a great hair tutorial for getting a performance quality bun. You’ll need a hair elastic, hair pins, a hair net that matches the hair color, gel, hairspray, and a brush. It is best to start with damp hair.
We recommend investing in stage make-up. High quality stage make-up has very rich pigments and your stage make-up will last for years. Ben Nye, Mode Dion, and Mehron are all good stage make-up brands.
Angels, Little Children, Little Stars, Little Snow, Mice, Pages, and Polichinelle are required to wear: pancake foundation, blush, lipstick, mascara, setting powder
All other dancers are required to wear: pancake foundation, blush, lipstick, mascara, setting powder, eyeliner, false eyelashes, eye shadow, eyebrow pencil
Do not use any glitter make-up, tattoos, sequins, etc.
A good resource for how to apply stage make-up is Mode Dion. Here is a link to a very informative how-to video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kGhRuxNNxk.
cake foundation is water activated, use a damp sponge to apply
use eye primer to prep eyelids before applying eye shadow
an eyeliner application tool can be helpful when creating wings
twice daily washing and moisturizing of the face helps with texture and acne
makeup wipes are good in a pinch, but washing your face with a hydrating cleansing oil is best for your skin when removing makeup
for boys and men use more neutral shades of blush and lipstick, false eyelashes are not required for men
